    He was on a watch list. He bought his gun legally last week.

    Too bad that Republicans blocked a bill that would ban people on watch lists from legally acquiring weapons.

    ISIS are now praising him. Some days I'm so ashamed to be a member of the human race

    Donald Trump is pretty smug about it, too.

    HOLD OFF ON CONGRATULATING HIM FOR THIS FUCKING TRAGEDY

    Texas Lt Gov tweeted this. He claims this was a prescheduled tweet and not a reaction to the killings

    I'm actually going to guess that a lot of GOP members aren't too broken up about it considering who the victims were.

    Fundamental Islam and fundamental Christianity look a lot alike and share many of the same 'values' and beliefs.

    Mary and I posted at exactly the same time, but whether that is a pre-scheduled tweet or not, I am betting that many GOP members actually feel that way about this.

    Yeah...no. The FBI has had their sights on him for awhile now. He was armed to the teeth, and probably had protective gear on too. This crime didn't occur spur-of-the-moment because he was mad.

    I want to know what the camouflage was for, though. Doesn't blend in the city, DEFINITELY doesn't blend at pride.

    He's from Indiana and obviously not all there. I don't think it came to mind that he'd stick out like a sore thumb, but I'm glad that he did. Fucking nuts.

    The Long, Tragic History of Violence at LGBTQ Bars and Clubs in America


    The mass shooting at Orlando?s LGBT nightclub Pulse, which left at least 50 dead, is only the latest chapter in a long history of violence at LGBTQ bars and clubs in America. In fact, for as long as LGBTQ people have been congregating in their own social spaces, these spaces have been the target of vicious homophobic and transphobic violence.


    Until the Pulse massacre, the most notorious act of violence against a gay bar was the burning of the UpStairs Lounge, a New Orleans gay bar, in 1973. An arsonist set fire to the bar, killing 32 people in less than 20 minutes. The vast majority of politicians declined to comment on the arson, and the Catholic Archbishop of New Orleans did not offer support to the victims. (The Archdiocese apologized for its silence in 2013.) Many news outlets ignored the story; some of those that did cover it mocked the victims for being gay. No one has ever been prosecuted for the crime. When asked about identifying the victims, the chief detective of the New Orleans Police Department responded, ?We don?t even know these papers belonged to the people we found them on. Some thieves hung out there, and you know this was a queer bar.?

    In 1997, ?Olympic Park Bomber? Eric Robert Rudolph bombed the Otherside Lounge, a lesbian nightclub in Atlanta, later explaining that he believed ?the concerted effort to legitimize the practice of homosexuality? was an ?assault upon the integrity of American society.? He described homosexuality as ?an aberrant sexual behavior,? and wrote that ?when the attempt is made? to ?recognize this behavior as being just as legitimate and normal as the natural man/woman relationship, every effort should be made, including force if necessary, to halt this effort.? In his confession, Rudolph railed against the ?homosexual agenda,? including ?gay marriage, homosexual adoption, hate-crime laws including gays, or the attempt to introduce a homosexual normalizing curriculum into our schools.?

    Three years later, Ronald Gay opened fire on Backstreet Cafe, a gay bar in Roanoke, Virginia, killing Danny Overstreet, 43, and severely injuring six others. Gay was angry that his last name could mean ?homosexual? and said God had told him to kill gay people. He called himself a ?Christian Soldier working for my Lord? and testified in court that he wished he could have ?killed more fags.? More recently, in 2013, Musab Mohammed Masmari set fire to Neighbours, a gay nightclub in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle, on New Year?s Eve.* Masmari had explained that he believed gay people ?should be exterminated.?

    Of course, these attacks only punctuate the thousands of anti?LGBTQ hate crimes that occur in public?in schools and bathrooms and parks, on sidewalks and often in broad daylight?every year. Federal law did not explicitly criminalize anti?LGBTQ hate crimes until quite recently, as President George W. Bush had threatened to veto any legislation that outlawed hate crimes on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity. With President Barack Obama?s support, the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act finally passed in 2009. It drew just five Republican votes in the Senate, and its fiercest opponent, Republican Sen. Jeff Sessions, criticized his colleagues for merely caving to ?the political cause of the moment.?

    It's funny (funny not funny Haha) Trump and his cronies all want this to be Islamic terrorism rather than a hateful act against queer folks. I myself see it as an act by a loon who shouldn't have had access to guns but then I'm a bleeding heart libtard.

    Here are a bunch of fucking assholes: http://thoughtcatalog.com/jacob-geer...-club-shooter/ Really hope that most of those are troll accounts but with the way people are towards gay people still I think it's doubtful.
